Apple May Be Looking For A Second iPad Manufacturer


DigiTimes claims that Apple is seeking for the second manufacturer for the updated iPad set for release later this year.

Apple reportedly plans to add a second manufacturer for iPad 3 tablet PCs in addition to Foxconn Electronics with Taiwan-based Quanta Computer and [Pegatron] Technology being indicated as the potential contenders for the possible orders, according to industry sources in Taiwan.

[Pegatron], which reportedly have landed iPhone 5 orders from Apple, stands a better chance of winning the iPad 3 orders, the sources noted.

Pegatron now manufactures the CDMA iPhone 4 and Quanta is responsible for Mac production. Apple’s decision to add a new manufacturer for the iPad was mostly caused by the explosion on Foxconn plant and its circumstances. So the company seems to decide to minimize risk.
